Awards Recognize Nation’s Best and Brightest in Wellness Winners

Companies around the country put a lot of effort into providing a healthy environment for their employees, and in the last year, there’s been an especially big push to do just that.

Some companies do it better than others, and the National Association for Business Resources each year honors those who do it best.

The NABR recently recognized its 2020 Nation’s Best and Brightest in Wellness winners, rewarding companies that promote employee well-being, worksite health and wellness.

“Throughout the year of 2020, the Nation’s Best and Brightest in Wellness winners have demonstrated leadership and forward thinking as they pivoted their business and workforce through Covid-19,” said Jennifer Kluge, President and CEO, Best and Brightest Programs. “As the conversation and focus have shifted, our Best and Brightest winning companies have also been a voice for important actions regarding Well-being and Racial Justice. It is in these unique times that the Best and Brightest in Wellness winners excel and share their knowledge with others.”

These national winning companies were evaluated by an assessment created and administered by SynBella, the nation’s leading wellness systems firm. Company entries are examined statistically for quantitative and qualitative data.

Each survey was scored on a point system based upon criteria to benchmark and improve wellness program effectiveness.  They include outcomes, analysis, tracking, participation & incentives, benefits and programs, leadership, employee input, culture and environment.

With more than 20 years of experience conducting the Best and Brightest competitions, the National Association for Business Resources (NABR) has identified numerous best practices and provided benchmarking for companies that continue to be leaders in employment standards.

This year, the Best and Brightest in Wellness released the results in December in which 109 winning organizations from across the country are being honored. The Best and Brightest in Wellness winners will be honored during dual virtual Illuminate Business Summit week-long celebrations, March 15 ─ 19, 2021. The Illuminate Business Summit virtual celebrations are filled with education, connection, engagement, and inspiration. 

The Best and Brightest in Wellness celebrates those companies that are making their businesses flourish, the lives of their employees better and the community a healthier place to live. The Best and Brightest program provides year-long education, benchmarking, assessment tools and interaction amongst the best employers. Nominations are now being accepted for the 2021 programs.
